We have previously travelled on our own, and photographed many locations in state and national parks depending on advice from local park rangers. Travelling with Road Scholar photographic experts and nature guides not only added to our enjoyment, but allowed us to learn more than we would by ourselves.

Capturing the Rugged Landscape photography program enhanced my skills as a budding photographer. Mary Lou and Drew gave great tips on capturing the magnificent landscape of the Rocky Mountains. I enjoyed meeting the rest of the participants and sharing the week together.

An outstanding program with top of the line instructors. All of the day trips were excellent photo opportunities but one sunrise was over the top! Good group interaction and my photography ability was increased.

Photographing the Rugged Landscape of the Rockies is a trip I recommend for anyone who likes to walk, hike or take nature photographs. The Rocky Mountain National Park is gorgeous and Road Scholar travel makes it easy to enjoy. Linda McCullough, Indian Springs, AL

Had a great time on my first RS trip. Loved all the different areas that we explored during my first time in the Rocky Mountains. Mary Lou and Drew were very knowledgeable on both photography and the Rocky Mountains. Enjoyed getting to know the other participants on our adventures taking photos morning, noon and at night!

Loved the program, had a great time. Instructors were wonderful. Just getting back into photography, learned so many new things that I cannot wait to use. The other participants were welcoming, fun and helpful. Can't wait for my next RS adventure.
